The war department has solved the question as to the disposition of the artillery captured from Spain - in Cuba and Porto Rico by turning the whole matter over to the governors of the states. One gun will be allotted to each state, and the governor is .asked to de cide what disposition shall be made of the gun for his state. What will Oregon do with her spoils. The maximum thermometer today at The Dalles is 72. During the last warm spell it reached 82. The - most remark able coincidence in temperature was that of yesterday, when at Portland, The Dalies, Umatilla, Riparia, North- port and LeAiston the minimum was 40; At Wenatchee 46. On Monday at Port land the maximum was 56; at The Dalles and ' Umatilla 63; Wenatchee, Riparia and Lewiston 62; North port 60. The warm weather of today has caused many to shake their heads meaningly and predict a flo.d. It does look a little scarey ; but we mnst remember we cannot judge from our weather, which the re port says will last three days. The Snake will fall until Fridav, and the Columbia remain stationary until Satur day, when both rivers will experience a decided rite. The river here now stands at 34, a rise of .6 since yesterday, bnt fall of about an inch since morning. City election is nearer than we seem to think from the little we have heard con cerning it.

MacAllieter, Moody, Eddon and Miss Lang to engineer the perform ance. Mrs. Rnncie comes with the higheet of recommendations, and is a lady of refinement, so that we may ex - ptct a performance of refined nature. r nrther notice regarding it will be given from time to time in the Chronicle. Deputy Sheriff Sexton and Constable Hill returned last night from Salem, whither they went to convey John Stocking, an ineane man, to the asylum. The patient was induced to make the trip with the understanding that he was to purchase all. the supplies needed by Uncle Sam at the Philippines. The last the officers saw of poor old Stocking he was starting away, with an attendant on either side of him, to purchase onions to ship to the soldier boys. His greatest anxiety seeded to be that he would not get back in time to finish the palatial hotel he was erecting on the corner of Madison and Third street. Many no doubt have noticed this structure, built mostly of the hide of coal oil cans and with no covering to shot out the light of day. However, Stocking - insisted be would make of it a three-story structure which -would accommodate 200 guests. The beat thing that can be done with it since the proprietor has abandoned it would be for the marshal to have it torn down. . .. . -- - For the best results nee the 'Vive Camera.

The case of the suicide of Mies Laura Donaldson at the insane asylum last Sunday looming, and her shipment to The Dalles (which was het home; on the following day, has revealed to the people of this city a fact which was not a little surprising and caused much com ment in regard to the treatment Ore gon's insane dead receive at the bands of that institution. When officers of such an institution are appointed to these positions the state naturally sup poses that they are possessed of at least human instincts, which not only lead them to care carefully for the living, but to see that the nnfortunate dead re ceive at least the meagerest attention and a decent burial. Such it would seem is not the case; at least in one in stance it has not been so. Early Sunday morning Laura Donald son, who was committed from lhe Dalles about a year ago, committed euicide in that institution by tearing her night gown in strips and making a rope out of the same, which she fastened to the window guard, tied the other end about her neck, and laying down upon the floor, choaked herself. Word was telegraphed to Frank Men- efee, in this city, and he answered by telling them to. ship the body to this place, supposing, of course, the remains would receive such attention as the exigencies of the case demand, we know not what is considered the duty of the state in such cases, but surely it must be that Oregon is expected to show more respect to her dead than was given in the- instance of the young lady mentioned. When the remains reached here the undertaker was surprised to find the coffin (or box, for it was w hat is termed a pauper coffin) had no outside covering, such as coffins are usually in cased in. However, little wag thought of that matter; but when Crandall & Burget examined the corpee they were shocked at the little attention which it had received, having been what ol. might term, thrown in a coffin, which contained no lining and but a verv email pillow, part excelsior and part email blocks, with no appliances such as are used to prevent the body from shaking about' Woree than all, the proper clothing had not been put on the body, a night gown being the only garment of clothing, and -her hair seemingly had not been combed for some time, and hung over her face. In fact her friends were not permitted to eee her nntil a robe had been subati tuted and she bad been placed in a neat coffin. Presumably it was thought the coffin would not be opened ; bnt were it not is this a fitting bariai for any hnman being, much less one who in her sane momenta was as refined a" young lady as could be found, and of more than ordi nary intelligence? -Certainly the state is not expected to bury' its dead in an elaborate casket, but surely a ' lining of some kind ehould be placed therein, and if not that, some wearing apparel should cover the body other than a gown, and the hair might be arranged or the body placed so that it would not jolt aronnd in the coffin. No pauper dead, no tramp, or even Indian, in Wasco county ever receives such a burial at the hands of the county, and we sincerely trust and must say believe, this is an ex ceptional case of a body being Ehipped by the state in any such manner. Miss Donaldson was no pauper, but sufficient property was left by her father to give her a respectable burial, which, thanks to friends, the received. She has a large number of friends hrre who are juetly indignant at the manner in which ber.remaina were treated. A question just here suggests itself to everyone, if the dead rtceive such treat ment, how about the living? - The Chboxiclb dislikes very much to complain, but surely something is "rot ten in Oregon" when ' such proceedings are allowed, to go on within its bounda ries. THE FRENCH CLUFF WEDDING. A. Dalles Toai; Man Harries an Eastern Young Lad. .
